Après Ski In Morzine: And How To Get Home

Skiing by day, partying by night – Morzine’s après ski scene is as thrilling as its slopes. But where are the best places to go? Well, it all depends on what you like and where you’re skiing on any particular day. So, in this blog, we’ll share our top tips for Après ski in Morzine and how to get back to your accommodation.

The Ski Areas Around Morzine And Their Après Spots

Pleney

Let’s start with the Pleney side of the valley. This area connects Morzine with Les Gets via its network of ski lifts and slopes. It’s the only place in Morzine where you can ski directly into the village once you’ve finished skiing.

As you ski down the Stade (red), Piste B (easy blue), or the Olympique (black), you’ll see the Tremplin Hotel. The hotel has a great undercover bar where you’ll be entertained by DJs and live acts while dancing in your ski boots. You can head inside for a warmer and chilled-out experience if it’s particularly chilly.

If the Tremplin doesn’t take your fancy, you can head into the village and fall into any of the numerous bars available. For example, the Cavern and Tibetan bars feature live music après sessions, which can get pretty lively and are always worth trying.

Alternatively, walk further into the village to drink cocktails at Crepu or watch sports while snacking on tapas at Haka. Craft beer fans love sipping in-house brewed beers at Le Bec Jaune while sampling their ever-changing menu.

Super Morzine

If you’re finishing your day in Avoriaz on the other side of the valley, you might want to drop into L’Passage. This bar/restaurant sits just above the Super Morzine telecabine. It is an excellent stop-off for a drink before catching the last lift down, thanks to its sun-drenched terrace and slopeside deckchairs.

L’Passage is a favourite with locals, especially during spring, with its beach bar atmosphere. It’s also easy to get back into Morzine without too much skiing.

 

In The Village

Once you’ve got off the Super Morzine lift, you can head to the rest of the bar Morzine has to offer. For example, you could make your way to the bottom of the village, where you’ll find Bar Robinson (or Robbo’s, as the locals like to call it). Here, you can enjoy the infamous Mutzig beer, but go easy, as it is potent stuff.

If you want a more sophisticated après ski experience in Morzine, you may like La Coup de Coeur. This bar/restaurant has a more grown-up ambience with a fantastic selection of wines, beers, and spirits. They also provide nibbles with each round of drinks, which is very welcome after a day on the mountain. There is a large outdoor area, which is excellent in springtime as it sits in the sun, allowing you to enjoy drinks ‘en plein air’ without freezing. Sometimes, La Coup de Coeur provides live music outside and often hosts promotional parties, which are lots of fun.

Ardent

Many skiers and snowboarders start and finish their day at Ardent. This is the ski lift that takes you to and from Linderets. Linderets has many restaurants for a quick drink at before heading home, but you might want to save it for Happy Hours

Happy Hours is probably the most party-centric après ski bar in the valley. Après here starts pretty mellow, but the music volume gradually increases to warm everyone up for the DJs. For the ultimate Après ski experience, go to Happy Hours on Wednesday, when most locals have their day off and blow off steam. If you still have energy, you can head into Morzine afterwards to continue the

Prodains

Prodains is the other large cablecar that services Avoriaz from the other end of the valley. The après ski scene is a little more tranquil at the bottom of Prodains, with just a couple of restaurants. However, there’s a good chance you will have scratched your après itch at La Folie Douce in Avoriaz.

La Folie Douce is pretty much a nightclub at the side of the slopes but open during the day. Here, crowds are entertained by DJs, singers and musicians while they spray champagne over everyone. La Folie DOuce is definitely a place every visitor to Avoriaz should experience at least once.

If the bus queue is long, you may want a beer or vin chaud before you join it. There’s a little cabin on the snowfront at the bottom of the Prodains homerun called L’Address. This is an excellent spot to quench your thirst after the leg-burning descent from Avoriaz.

Getting Back To Your Accommodation After Après In Morzine

Morzine has a free shuttle bus service that runs to or close to all the major ski lifts around the resort. They run pretty regularly but fill up at times when people want to get back to Morzine. So, catching the bus back from Ardent or Prodains can be difficult or unpleasant due to party-goers piling on. Unlike most cities, you cannot just flag down a taxi or book an Uber in Morzine.

This is why we offer resort cabs to make your trip from the bottom of the lifts to your accommodation easy and pleasant. Book a resort cab in Morzine, and we will wait for you to enjoy a stress-free and comfortable transfer at the end of your après session. After a few beers, this is much easier than stomping around in ski boots.
